early voters 50% voting for president obama. obama, 44% for mitt romney. election day that means mitt romney has to get 53% of the vote in florida if he's going to win. so that is a pretty hefty tag to run up. that's all according to the obama campaign. in iowa over a third of voters have already voted there. and among those early voters, you can see 64% of those are supporting barack obama. 35% of them are supporting mitt romney. and that means that mitt romney is going to need to win 59% of election-day voters. in north carolina, nearly half of all ballots have already been cast. and of those who have already been cast, 58% of those early voters favor the president. 41% of those favor mitt romney. so mitt romney is going to need to win 57% of north carolina on election day. we're seeing that pattern play out in the other swing states, too like nevada, virginia, wisconsin. so the republicans are trying to make up ground. in florida we're seeing this because republican leaders are on a two-day bus tour promoting early voting. here is romney florida campaign chairman adam putnam. >> we

is the state that will likely decide the presidential election. governor romney knows that only too well that no republican has won the white house without winning ohio and the race right now in ohio is close to a dead heat. let's look at the two latest polls. first, our own cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three point lead. now that is inside the statistical margin of error. so that's about as close as it can get. and nbc "wall street journal" poll gives the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington.

over backwards. in terms of what i see happening going forward, if mitt romney is elected with an all-republican congress, if republicans do manage to take over the senate and hold the house, at least the latter one is likely, he would be able to work with them. if he had to work with a democratic senate, his relationship with harry reid i think is far to say is not great. conversely if barack obama is re-elected, he will have to work with speaker john boehner and very likely have a democratic senate. and what's fascinating about that and you've talked about it a lot, is is we do have a reverse situation in the last couple of years on our hands. he's got the leverage in the fiscal cliff. he can let this happen and republicans can decide if they want taxes to be much, much higher. republicans see their leverage coming two months after the fiscal cliff we have another debt ceiling coming up. i think a lot of folks in politics are skeptical that if the republicans lose an election, the american people are open to them triggering a debt ceiling. >> i don't think there's going to be a
